Packers ST coach Shawn Mennenga said Mason Crosby will battle Sam Ficken for the kicking job, adding “we’ll see who the best man will be.” A calf injury has kept Crosby -- Green Bay's kicker since 2007 -- out of training camp. Ficken, though, is just 3 for 6 on FG attempts through 2 seasons. A healthy Crosby should earn a roster spot, but his current status makes him someone to avoid in early drafts.
Packers K Mason Crosby sprained his ankle last Friday and has been unable practice since. No word on whether it's his kicking leg or plant leg. The good news is that beat writer Pete Dougherty notes that Crosby is walking without a limp. Sounds like it's just a minor injury, but we'll update Crosby's status when we learn more. If healthy; he's a top-notch fantasy option.
